Aspirus Medford Hospital and Clinics is seeking a BC/BE Internal Medicine physician to join our team in Medford, Wisconsin. 

This is a perfect blend of outpatient care with inpatient involvement…without high demand call. 

  • Outpatient, 4 ½ day work week.  Includes nursing home visits.
  • 12-16 patients/day. 
  • Every 5th week, act as collaborating physician for our hospitalist program independently staffed by three full time NPs.  *See more details about the program below.
  • Work with great colleagues and support staff.
  • Enjoy opportunities for innovation.  Incorporate the best practices, including new information/treatment protocols.
  • Take time with your patients. 
  • Excellent sub-specialty support.
  • This is not a visa eligible opportunity.

*Hospitalist Program:
We’ve developed a unique hospitalist program that is independently staffed by three full-time NPs.   They work a 1 week on, 2 weeks off rotation.  During their week on, they are in-house during business hours and on pager call at all other times for a seven day period. Supervision is provided by collaborating primary care physicians on a 1:5 rotation.

The collaborating physician on for the week takes back-up calls from the hospitalists. In addition, they meet once daily with the hospitalists to review inpatient census.  The program is supported by 24/7 Utilization Review nurses that assist with admissions.

In addition, the selected candidate will be asked to provide medical director leadership for this program (with separate compensation structure).  

There are no call responsibilities beyond this associated with this position. General surgeons and CRNA team provide procedural coverage. This innovative new approach to hospitalist care has proven to be a perfect fit for small rural facilities.
